UNICEF Ambassador Ishmael Beah, 'Radiance of Tomorrow'
03/25/2014 7:00 pm
Ishmael Beah woke us from our slumbers with his memoir of being a forced child soldier in Sierra Leone, A Long Way Gone. Join us as the UNICEF Ambassador
and Advocate for Children Affected by War revisits his homeland after the
fighting is done and continues the story of his country's civil war in Radiance of Tomorrow: A Novel.
Friends Benjamin and Bockarie return to their desecrated village, intent on rebuilding the community by taking up their old posts as
teachers. Hunger, retaliation, scattered acts of violence, and a foreign mining
concern’s depredations slow their progress and precipitate some soul searching,
but our heroes (like Beah himself) stay radiant to the end.
